About the Author
The author was born in Bradwell, a small village in the Hope Valley in Derbyshire,UK, were she grew up and eventually became a foster carer, which she has now been for 41yrs. She and her husband have cared for many children with a variety of personal and physical issues, some very challenging. They have also brought up their own family and still held jobs as well. Fostering is a continual learning curve, just when you think you have seen it all, something else can come along that you have'nt dealt with before, especially in the fast changing world of technology. But experience has shown that attachment to parents, or the lack of it in many cases plays a major role in children's behaviour and how they respond to being in the care system. Having to work with children, schools, social workers and local authorities etc, there's never a dull moment. But the satisfaction for foster carer's is making a positive difference to their live's and hopefully giving them a future and see them flourish and have families of their own.
